What happens when the killer is inside you? And he doesn't miss a single shot...
Medical Detective brings us fifteen edge-of-your-seat medical detective stories written by practicing physician and Harvard professor Jonathan Edlow. These real-life cases show the doctor as detective and the epidemiologist as elite sleuth; the resulting stories are as gripping as the best fictional thrillers.
"Much like a true-life version of television's House M.D., these fast-paced, detail-heavy stories will prove compelling for fans of mystery and medicine." Publishers Weekly.
“Edlow tells these tales of medical detection with wit and elegance. . . . [He] could easily become the dean, the Dr. Watson, as it were, of doctors who solve medical mysteries.” Booklist.
“Drama, intrigue, solid detective work are the fabric on which Edlow weaves a bountiful collection of fascinating stories. It will inform and keep you spellbound. The pulse is exciting, the thrill of discovery palpable. Masterfully written.” Sanjiv Chopra (Harvard Medical School).
